Powered by Firework Gareth Bale refused to hold Real Madrid’s crest before the game against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday. Before the beginning of the match, there was a photo session of the players in the starting lineup of the Los Blancos. Bale was standing in the middle of the whole group. Consequently, Raphael Varane gave the club crest to Bale.Advertisement However, the Welshman refused to hold the crest. After getting the crest from Raphael Varane, he immediately passed it to Daniel Carvajal. The crest should have been in the middle of the picture, but it was not present there. Needless to say, the picture seemed to be really awkward.Advertisement Gareth Bale’s future at Real Madrid was quite uncertain during the summer transfer window of 2019-20 season. The move to a Chinese Super League club was almost finalized for the speedy winger. However, the proposed transfer was cancelled at the last moment and Bale stayed at Real Madrid.Gareth Bale’s performances at the beginning of the season for the Los Blancos have been impressive. Though, it is being reported that Bale is not happy with the team management of Zinedine Zidane. The situation between Gareth Bale and Real Madrid’s management team is deteriorating every day and things could end in a bitter way.Advertisement ALSO READ:Watch: A brilliant rap constructed using only football player puns!

Full-body imprints of amphibians claimed to be 330 million years old have been reported from Pennsylvania. “The imprints show the unmistakably webbed feet and bodies of three previously unknown, foot-long salamander-like critters that lived 100 million years before the first dinosaurs.” The story in a press release from the Geological Society of America contains a photo and drawing of the unusual fossils. Spencer Lucas, paleontologist from the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science, said, “Body impressions like this are wholly unheard of.” Other interesting things were found in the same formation, including a monster in time for Halloween:Also found in rocks from the same formation and of the same age are footprints of other relatively large animals and fossils of insects and plants, Lucas explained. There is even a saucer-sized footprint of an unknown vertebrate that suggests larger four-footed beasts lived far earlier than ever before suspected.The impressions were not found in the field. They were found when examining specimens that had been sitting for decades in the Reading Public Museum Collection.Sound familiar? Larger, advanced creatures living much earlier than previously believed, in exquisitely preserved rock that they just “know” is hundreds of millions of years old. Sounds like a broken record in more than one sense (09/18/2007 commentary).(Visited 35 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest 180102_RyanMartinThe forecast is pretty lackluster for the rest of this week as 2018 is off to a frigid start. Bitter cold air remains the main feature and we should see sunshine dominate most of the state today through the start of the weekend. Temperatures will average a good 10-20 degrees below normal at times through the period. We expect subzero temps each of the next several nights/mornings over parts of Ohio north of I-70, and easily single digit readings for overnight lows in the south. Strong north and northwest winds will be funneling this cold air into Ohio and that can produce lake effect snows through the next few days. Today that action is limited to far northeast parts of the state, particularly Ashtabula County, and then later tomorrow and Thursday we can see that spread a bit along the south shores of the Lake, particularly north central along with northeast. WE can see some clouds from this push down close to US 30, but in general, lake snows will stay north of US 20 in north central Ohio, and I-80 in northeast Ohio.South winds start to develop Saturday night of our next front and storm system. These winds will help moderate temperatures some, but we stay mostly below freezing right on through Sunday. A powerful low comes out of the central to southern plains next weekend and we start to see precipitation push into western and southwestern Ohio next Sunday night. The cold air in place means precipitation will start as snow. But, as strong south winds continue to come up ahead of the actual cold front, precipitation changes over to rain in southwest Ohio by 4 to 5 a.m. Monday morning. We could see some heavier rains or even a rumble of thunder through Monday morning in those areas. Waking up Monday in northwest Ohio, we can see a sloppy mix continue through the day as the low pressure center tracks over Indiana, and in eastern parts of the state we could see some significant snows through the noon hour before an attempt at a wintry mix develops. Eventually, strong north winds will return and bring back arctic air behind the front late Monday overnight and into early Tuesday. However, moisture may be significantly decreased by then, meaning the ending snows may be minor, but could blow substantially through the first half of Tuesday. This is our initial look at this system in terms of laying it out to you chronologically. There is plenty of time for things to change, and timing will be one of those variables. Also, there is a large amount of moisture with this system. We can see liquid equivalent precipitation totals of half to 1”. The map above shows liquid equivalent precipitation totals over the entire potential duration of the event. This has the potential to be a mess! So, track here is very, very important. The current track has a large amount of rain with it. If the low stays a little farther south and east, we could be looking at a lot more snow, and very little rain. Or, if it tracks farther north and west, over IL and into MI let’s say, they we could be looking at more or even all rain! So, the one thing for certain is that we have a massive winter storm headed toward us to finish the weekend and start next week, and there is plenty of moisture with it. But…it all comes down to the track as to what type of precipitation we see, and who gets the worst. We will be watching this storm closely the rest of the week, and will have updates all the way through.Behind the system, we have another bitter cold week on the way then next week. Temps pull back to below normal levels, and may try and rival this week, although we think next week may end up being just slightly better. In the extended 11-16 day forecast window, we have dry weather continuing through the 13th, but then another front is on the way for the 14th, which can bring another chance of significant snows just ahead of mid-month. Our quick look at week 3 and week 4 suggests that we see below normal temps through most of the balance of January.
John Lloyd Cruz a dashing guest at Vhong Navarro’s wedding University of the Philippines needed just one point to extend the match to a fourth set and take a crack at sending it to a fifth, but the Lady Maroons didn’t have their fate in their hands.It was La Salle’s possession and young Michelle Cobb made her way to the service line with one simple instruction in mind—just get it over.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutThe Lady Spikers were up 2-0 in sets, but trailed UP 24-23 in the third set, and it was up to Cobb to send the Lady Maroons back to Diliman.Pressure mounted on the 18-year-old Cobb because she knew that one slip would allow UP a chance for the victory, but with Ramil De Jesus putting his trust on her the setter knew she would deliver. Read Next AFP official booed out of forum “Actually I can’t breath during that time, but all I thought about was coach Ramil telling me to just get the ball over and just trust myself,” said Cobb in Filipino. “He told me that my heart and my mind should dominate the situation.”The charming setter breathed a low sigh, then let go of her first serve with the ball landing square in UP’s porous defense.Cobb’s fifth service ace of the match tied the set at 24-24, now La Salle just has to score two more points to secure the victory.“I just composed myself and I told myself to go for it one at a time,” said Cobb who was well aware of the noise that enveloped the arena. “I just held on to the trust coach Ramil and my teammates gave me and I don’t want to waste it.”And as the bipartisan crowd exchanged cheers and jeers, Cobb once again composed herself and would score her sixth and seventh service aces giving La Salle the 25-21, 25-22, 26-24 victory.ADVERTISEMENT It was at that moment, when UP failed to return her final serve that Cobb knew she did her job and give La Salle a 2-0 record to tie National University atop the standings.“My teammates and I all wanted to finish the game in three sets and coach was always telling me that we should work hard for each point,” said Cobb who finished with 10 points and 32 excellent sets.And even though Cobb finally had her own moment in the limelight, the comparisons to the iconic Kim Fajardo still won’t go away.Cobb, however, made it a point that she won’t compare herself to Fajardo, a three-time UAAP Best Setter, and that she would make a name for herself through her own style and achievements.“I’m not thinking of those comparisons, I have my own thing,” said Cobb who became Fajardo’s teammate in her first year. “I want to prove that I am my own player, I have my own style, I have my own skills on the way I play.”Cobb’s late-game heroism may have been the beginning of her notoriety in the UAAP but she knows the UP game was over and a new match is just another beginning for her.“I won’t settle for these past two games,” said Cobb. “After this I will go back to the very start and prepare for the next game.” Sports venues to be ready in time for SEA Games PLAY LIST 00:59Sports venues to be ready in time for SEA Games01:27Filipino athletes get grand send-off ahead of SEA Games00:50Trending Articles01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City Slow and steady hope for near-extinct Bangladesh tortoises LATEST STORIES NEXT BLOCK ASIA 2.0 introduces GURUS AWARDS to recognize and reward industry influencers 2 ‘newbie’ drug pushers fall in Lucena sting Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Noah West celebrates with Gavin Lyon following scoring a run during the two’s days in Little League for the Westerville Warhawks. Credit: Courtesy of Carrie WestComing from a small town and being counted on to play a varsity sport is not an easy task to ask of anyone. It can be a very challenging transition.But freshmen baseball players Noah West and Gavin Lyon have something that can help make that transition much easier — a friendship dating back to the days of Little League.And, as West noted, having his best friend by his side to begin his collegiate baseball career at Ohio State proved to be very advantageous for the pair.“Coming into here, I was pretty nervous; it was really nerve-wracking,” West said. “A whole new set of players who we were playing with, and we don’t know them that well. But coming here with Gavin is basically a comfort zone. He’s always had my back, and if something’s going on, I can always come talk to him. It was always just a lot easier coming here with him.”They first started playing with each other when they were on a travel team called the Westerville Warhawks. Their fathers had been good friends and both helped coach the team. From there, they would continue to grow up and play at every level together from Little League to the varsity at their school, Westerville Central High School.For their former high-school baseball coach, Jeff Keifer, it has been a remarkable thing to watch the two of them grow up together and now both play at the highest level of amateur baseball.“They went on spring trips together. They played on the same travel teams growing up and then eventually playing on practice teams and ultimately junior varsity and varsity for three years,” Keifer said. “And that in and of itself must be incredibly special — just to be able to do that. But the uniqueness of them both being able to go on and play at the next level at a place with the storied history of Ohio State, it was just great for both of them.”Both have made it to the level of college baseball, but each took different paths.West, the youngest of three brothers, has grown up in a baseball family and has always had the sport in the forefront of his mind. Coach Keifer, who coached both West’s older brothers in high school, had figured for a long time Noah was going to be able to move on to the next level.“He just had that special athleticism that makes the difference between just a really good high-school player and a college athlete,” Keifer said.OSU baseball coach Greg Beals thought West had the skills to live up to the high expectations that come with playing shortstop at OSU.“I thought Noah showed me that between his hands, his athleticism and especially his arm strength that he could stay at shortstop at the college level,” Beals said.Noah West (left) and Gavin Lyon (right) pose for a photo on a visit at an Ohio State football game. Credit: Courtesy of Carrie WestLyon was a multi-sport athlete in high school, serving as both a starting pitcher for the baseball team and as starting quarterback for the football team. There was a time when baseball was not necessarily the runaway first sport for Lyon.“I was kind of new to baseball,” Lyon admits. “I’ve always loved both, but baseball especially through high school became the one, that I knew was going to be the one that I wanted to pursue further.”But as he continued on his high school career, Lyon became more enamored with the game of baseball and his coach said that it had probably surpassed football as his favorite sport by the time he was a senior.Though he now only plays the one sport, Lyon still possesses that athleticism that made him such an exciting player to watch. Coach Beals believes it is really special when you see someone who can excel in two sports the way Lyon did at Westerville Central.“It speaks to his athleticism,” Beals said. “To be able to quarterback at a big high school like that and then also be the No. 1 pitcher on his high school team speaks a lot about his athleticism.”When it finally came time to commit to a school, West was the first to submit a pledge to coach Beals and the OSU program. And at that point, it quickly became an easier decision for Lyon to decide to join the OSU baseball team. The prospect of playing baseball together for four more years with his best friend seemed too good an offer to pass up.“Noah visited first and he committed, so I committed a little later, but there was always that thing where Noah was pushing me to commit,” Lyon said. “We had always been thinking about it, like how cool would that be, and it really was like a dream come true when it all came into place.”For West, it was just a dream, one that somehow became fact rather than fiction.“I just never thought it would be possible to play baseball with my best friend all the way through high school,” he said.
“I couldn’t hear anything,” he said. “Emotions were flying, and words can’t even describe how good that felt.” After suffering a rough first half, which included a pass interference call that led to a second PSU score, Torrence sought to redeem himself in the second half. The Buckeyes made adjustments at halftime to get back in the game. So did Torrence. “I just told myself, ‘I am just going to be more aggressive, and if you all throw anything into these flats or try and run any type of screens, it’s going to be a wrap for you,’” he said. “That was just my halftime adjustment for myself.” It worked. After senior captain Brian Rolle challenged his fellow defensive teammates on the sideline to make a big play, Torrence delivered. “That was big,” Rolle said. “I remember before that telling all the guys, ‘Who wants it? Who wants to be great?’ Sure enough, he picked the ball off and ran it back, and I told him, ‘That’s how you be great.’” The interception deflated the sinking Penn State offense and proved to be the difference in the game. Torrence’s score gave the Bucks a three-point lead, one they would not relinquish. “Those kinds of plays take games over,” said defensive tackle Dexter Larimore. “It hurts their offense and quarterback … It was big for momentum change. Tonight those made the difference.” One play. That’s all it takes to change the course of a game. The Penn State Nittany Lions realized that Saturday as they saw their 14-3 halftime lead quickly turn to a 38-14 pummeling by the No. 9-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes. With the Nittany Lions trailing by four points midway through the third quarter, it appeared that momentum was shifting toward the Buckeyes. Cornerback Devon Torrence helped continue the shift. Facing a second-and-nine from their own 37-yard line, Nittany Lions quarterback Matt McGloin dropped back to pass. As he fired short to his left, Torrence made a break for the ball and came away with it. “I just saw it and just jumped it,” Torrence said. “I think it was maybe a low throw and I had to kind of tip it to myself to put it into position for me to catch it.” Tipping the McGloin pass twice before securing the ball and returning it 34 yards for the go-ahead touchdown, Torrence turned a docile crowd of 105,466 into one of pure pandemonium in a matter of seconds.
Former Juventus and Atalanata defender Mattia Caldara made his Milan debut in a 1-0 Europa League victory against Dudelange which he used to assure he “learns something new” every day.Caldara had been placed on the bench as he slowly got used to the new club, however, he had the full 90 minutes in the Europa League and had the following to say to Sky Sports Italia via Football Italia.“I knew this was a fundamental game for me and for the team, as we wanted to start the Europa League well.”Serie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….“It was a difficult match, because we couldn’t take it for granted and had everything to lose. It was crucial to keep the right attitude throughout and we emerged with the points.“It has been a real learning curve, as every training session I learn something new, such as where my teammates like to cross the ball and in my positioning.“I can’t wait to repay this glorious club for the faith it has shown in me.”
